While secret societies have terrific members-only benefits, their gorilla-centric initiation rites are often illegal. Make a solemn fitness vow that's legal with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a one-month unlimited membership to Cascade Athletic Clubs (up to an $81 value for the membership, plus a $33 value for the initiation fee). Your Groupon is good for unlimited gym, pool, and class access at all three area locations—Gresham, East Gresham, and in Portland on S.E. Stark. In an effort to fully accommodate each member, the staff kindly asks new recruits to make an initial appointment to set up the membership.
All three CAC locations provide a full selection of fit-inducing apparatuses including weights, cardio equipment, and more. Likewise, each location plays host to a variety of energetically instructed classes ranging from step aerobics to aqua fitness and all the Pilates, tai chi, and strength training in between (check locations for availability). Also included with this deal is access to ADAPT training classes (a $15 value), a performance-development program that restores, balances, and develops the bodily system until it's fit as a refurbished fiddle. Throughout the month-long membership, feel free to try out any other appetizing classes that are in line with your goals, preexisting fitness routine, or level of interest in sliding electrically.
For the sporting athletes in your car pool, the Gresham location is equipped with eight tennis courts, available for reservation, and an outdoor water park that features baby slides, water jets, wading pools, and a poolside area lined with tan-tempting lawn chairs. To let the family sample the tennis courts, water park, or any other facility, stop in during weekly family hours for discounted guest rates at each location.
Valid for new clients only, or those who have not visited or been a member during the past 12 months.

Cascade Athletic Clubs
Since 1977, Cascade Athletic Clubs have distinguished themselves from typical gyms with their vast array of amenities, which range from big-screen TVs to a seasonal waterpark. In their fitness studios, instructors boost students’ flexibility during Yoga workouts, lead seniors through age-appropriate workout techniques during Silver Sneakers classes, or teach students how to dance to fast-paced music during Zumba. The dedicated team of personal trainers, meanwhile, help athletes stay motivated on a one-on-one basis, and tailor their regimens to individual goals that range from weight loss to preparing for an upcoming marathon. They can also bulk up with Life Fitness machines, free weights, and Stair Masters designed to build strong enough leg muscles to conquer even the most daunting out-of-order escalator.
